Is anyone else really confused about when we are? Between school starting (which seems especially early this year), much cooler temperatures here in the Midwest (also early), and a “late” Labor Day, I am utterly confused as to when I am.
It didn’t help that my mom reminded me that Christmas is 4 months from this past Tuesday. Sigh.
The optional theme for Week 34 was “Non-population.” If you followed the theme, I hope you had as much fun digging into the non-population schedules as I always do!
Leave a comment with a link to your Week 34 post and a little bit about your ancestor. As always, take a look at Week 33’s posts. Be warned — there are some sad stories in the “Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent” theme.
(My writing this week was on my other blog: “How Quilting Is Like Genealogy” and “National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers: A Surprisingly Rich Resource.” In that one, I went into more detail with the record shown on the Bryan Cranston episode of Who Do You Think You Are?“)
Upcoming Optional Themes
- Week 35 (August 27 – September 2) – School Days

If you need some ideas on how to approach September’s theme, I have some on the September themes announcement. (As always, the themes are optional. Write about whomever you want!)
